2015 Chevrolet Suburban vs 2015 Toyota Sequoia
Shoppers who need full-size SUV capacity, capability, and muscle are no doubt considering the 2015 Chevrolet Suburban and 2015 Toyota Sequoia. Both of these big, burly sport utilities don’t compromise, like the currently en vogue crossover utility vehicles that have seemingly taken over the market. If you’re shopping for a truck-based SUV then read on to see how these two vehicles really compare.
Power and Performance
Take a look under the hood of the Toyota Sequoia and you’ll find a muscular 5.7L V8 that makes 383 hp and 403 lb-ft of torque. The Chevrolet Suburban comes standard with a 5.3L V8 that makes slightly less power at 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. While the output numbers make the Suburban look like the less capable SUV, you’ll find that the Suburban can actually pull more than the Sequoia, and it also burns significantly less gas. See for yourself:
- Towing: The Sequoia has a maximum towing rating of up to 7,400 pounds. The Suburban beats that by 900 pounds, with its maximum towing rating of 8,300 pounds when properly equipped.
- Fuel Economy: The Toyota Sequoia is rated at an unimpressive 13 mpg city/18 mpg highway with rear-wheel drive in EPA estimates. The Chevrolet Suburban, with its considerably more modern engine is rated at 16 mpg city/23 mpg highway. Both vehicles with all-wheel drive sacrifice 1 mpg across the board, meaning that the Suburban is still considerably more efficient than the Sequoia.
Warranty and Maintenance Coverage
We know you’re planning to depend on your full size SUV for years to come, and you want warranty coverage to back up the quality of your vehicle. The Chevrolet Suburban is sold with a 5-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, while the Sequoia is sold with only a 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. If you drive a lot of miles, the Chevy’s warranty is clearly better. The Suburban also comes with the same amount of roadside assistance coverage, while the Toyota only comes with 2-years/25,000-miles of roadside assistance coverage.
